Fancy a specific drop? TextWine is your own personal sommelier

Sometimes wines are hit and miss. Some will make your tastebuds do a little happy dance and linger in your memory long after the last sip whilst others are destined to be erased. If you have ever experienced the pain of falling in love with a wine at a restaurant but have then forgotten the name of it when you went to find it again (possibly because you enjoyed it a little too hard) or you want to relive a special memory with a particular drop but have no idea where to find it, you need TextWine in your life. more

Ahoy, mates! Eco-friendly electric picnic boats by GoBoat to set sail on the Gold Coast this summer

If you've ever daydreamed about cruising through the waterways on your own private boat while grazing on cheese boards and sipping champagne, only to be abruptly catapulted back to reality when you realise that you don't actually own a boat, let alone have a licence to drive one, then we have news for you. A fleet of eco-friendly electric-powered picnic boats is launching on the Gold Coast this summer – no licence is required, and you can BYO snacks and sips. more

Gold Coast Open House gives you the keys to the city

As locals, we're often so focussed on getting from A to B that we don’t stop and take in our surroundings to appreciate just how far this fabulous city has come. So, consider Gold Coast Open House your chance to slow down, enjoy and revel in the evolution of architecture on the Gold Coast by getting a tour of some of the city’s most iconic spaces. The event, held on Saturday October 19, will see 56 interesting spaces – some of which are generally closed to the public – opened up for just one day for your viewing pleasure. more

Love DJ Carl Cox, Example and Hot Dub Time Machine? Here’s your chance to win tickets to the Vodafone Gold Coast 600 and meet them!

Some of the world’s biggest music makers are set to descend on the coast this October for a massive two-night concert series as part of the Vodafone Gold Coast 600. While the iconic annual motorsport festival is very much about nail-biting racing, burning rubber and fast, loud Supercars, you’ll certainly want to ditch the protective ear muffs after sundown when names like British DJ Carl Cox and festival superstars Hot Dub Time Machine hit the trackside stage to send their beats far and wide. While the iconic event will be buzzing with intense, edge-of-your-seat racing action by day, the party will rev-up even more after dark with seven major music acts to perform across two nights on two brand-new mega stages located inside the race track. To celebrate the arrival of this party-starting mix of internationally renowned dance artists, we’re giving one lucky reader… more

Sport a pair of post-petroleum sneakers from French footwear company VEJA

Did you know that the majority of running shoes on the market are made from a material that is 99-percent plastic, specifically, a polymer that is 99-percent petroleum? It doesn't take a scientist to know that doesn't bode particularly well for the future of our planet. The good news is that there's a cleaner alternative. Introducing The Condor, the first post-petroleum running shoe from French footwear company VEJA. more
